This ladies tallit is a 22×72 silk covering with handmade tzitzits (actually the plural form of tzitzit is tzitziyot, but most are more familiar with our Americanized plural form).
They come in either beaded tzitzits or simple tassel tzitzits and are attached to the four corners. The beaded ones are delicate, so treat them gently. If you want something more for everyday use, consider the tassel tallit.
Both types of tzitzits – whether tassels or beaded – are in accordance with Numbers 15:37-41
The LORD said to Moses, “Speak to the people of Israel, and tell them to make tassels on the corners of their garments throughout their generations, and to put a cord of blue on the tassel of each corner. And it shall be a tassel for you to look at and remember all the commandments of the LORD, to do them, not to follow after your own heart and your own eyes, which you are inclined to whore after. So you shall remember and do all my commandments, and be holy to your God. I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt to be your God: I am the LORD your God.”
Each tzitzit has 1 intentionally blue strand running through it. The beaded ones are strung on blue and on the tassels there is a blue strand in each hand-crafted tassel. They are put on the four corners in accordance with Deuteronomy 22:12, “You shall make yourself tassels on the four corners of the garment with which you cover yourself.”
Jewish tradition states that these tassels must be created intentionally, much in the same way one doesn’t wake up one morning and OOPS have a wedding ring on. These tzitzits symbolize your commitment to YHWH (the LORD) and to His word. This is not a matter to be taken lightly. By you requesting these tzitzits, you have indicated your intent, which I will carry out on your behalf.
Also, if you’re interested in knowing more about why someone would want to use a tallit, we have a post with a video that touches on that on our blog: Custom Beaded Tallit (And Why One Might Use One).
